⚠️ Warning: long post ahead, but I have to get something off my chest. Today, I had a walk with a new client who lives in a gated community. When I pulled up to the front gate with my car, I started talking to the gate security guy. He asked me a couple questions about Wag and how it works. We had a really nice conversation until he asked me about the kind of dogs I walk. “So you can walk any dog?” “Yes.” What startled me was his next question, “But what if it is a pit bull?” I have encountered other situations where people have discriminated this breed, and I have ENOUGH! Some of my clients are pits or pit mixes, and they are the sweetest dogs! All they want to do is shower me with kisses. It is so sad that so many people in society are uneducated about this topic. The media hyping it doesn’t help. Whenever a pit bull is involved in an attack, the headlines read like this: Man attacked by pit bull. But if it is another breed, the headlines mostly look like this: Man attacked by dog. During my time as a dog walker, I personally have been bit by a Wiener dog mix, and one of my four legged clients was being attacked by a Golden Retriever. But people’s ears always go right up when you mention the word pit bull. Aggressive behavior by dogs has NOTHING to do with their breed. A lot has to do with how humans treat their dogs. I am so tired of breed discrimination. Please stop giving me lectures, comments, and dirty looks when I am doing my job 🙏🏻 Here is a picture of sweet Lola and Billie, two pit mixes i had the pleasure of taking out on an outing today #pitbulladvocate ❤️ • • • 🐾🐕🐾🐕🐾🐕🐾🐕🐾🐕🐾🐕🐾🐕 @wag #wagwalking #dogwalking #dogwalker #orangecounty #losangeles #doglover🐶 #mixedbreed #pitmix #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram #pitbullpuppy #pitbulllove #putbullmixes #pittiesofig #pittbullsofinstagram
